Today’s football betting tips for Friday dip into some league action.

It’s three of the best picks of the day that we have as we visit Ireland, Finland and Denmark.

We start our look at today’s football betting in the Danish top flight.


Best Football Betting Tips Today: Midtjylland v Odense

Football betting tips today start with league action from Denmark.

Midtjylland are second in the table at the moment, but their current form hasn’t been hot.

They are just W2 D1 L3 in their last six league fixtures.

But it is their home form that sparkles and what makes them strong favourites for three points.

Midtjylland have won 12 of 16 home games this season (D2 L2).

In that run of matches, they have averaged over two goals per game, while they have conceded at a rate of 0.44 goals per home game.

That’s some heavy statistics on their side.

Earlier this season when they met Odense there was a 1-1 draw played out between teeth sides.

But Midtjylland have won three of their last four home games against this opponent.

Odense are actually in better form than their opponents. They have won four of their last six.

That burst of form has helped them climb up and position themselves in the middle of the table.

But on the road, they have lost 7 of 16 played (W4 D5) and with two defeats in their last three away from home, that could be where it falls down.

Midtjylland to win at 8/13

Football Betting Picks Today: St Patrick’s v Drogheda

Football betting for today moves on to the Irish Premier Division.

This one looks like producing a comfortable home success for St Patricks who have won three of their last five.

St Patricks are currently sitting third in the league.

They have strung together a three-match winning streak at home, which was started with a comfortable win over second-placed Sligo Rovers.

The home record of St Patricks for this campaign is an impressive W8 L2 and they have conceded at under a goal per game in home fixtures.

On Friday night St Patricks are hosting the team directly behind them in the standings.

Drogheda though have won only one of their last five league games (D2 L2).

So they haven’t been carrying strong form as of late. On the road for this reason they have picked up four wins in ten games.

Drogheda are currently winless in three on the road (D2 L1) and may just come up short.

St Patricks to win at 4/6

Football Betting Tips for Today: FC Ilves v SJK

Today’s football betting tips finish up in Finland for some Friday night league action.

Ilves are mid-table in the top flight, but they have just found a little bit of form.

They have banked 7 of the last 9 available points. Tellingly perhaps, the two wins in that sequence were both at home.

The home record of Ilves could be the key to unlocking this game.

They are W4 L1 this season from their five games.

A couple of those successes were against teams who are currently sat inside the top three.

Bet at Boylesports

SJK are above Ilves in the table and are W3 L3 in their last six league fixtures.

They are the lowest-scoring team in the top half of the division at the moment, averaging exactly a goal per game.

SJK’s away record for the season is W3 L2 and when they hosted Ilves back in mid-June, they banked a 1-0 home win against them.

There has been a lot of strength in defence by SJK this season to their credit.

However, we just think that Ilves have strong enough home form and little more in the attack to sneak the win.

Ilves to win at 6/4
